Naxos to Santorini – Ferry Essentials

  • is the best way to buy ferry tickets for Naxos to Santorini ferries. It’s also good for researching ferry timetables, costs, and schedules.
  • Most ferries do not sell out. But for peace of mind, book tickets 2 to 3 months in advance.
  • Most tickets (when booked through FerryHopper) are e-tickets which means you do not have to pick up a paper ticket before boarding.
  • If a ticket purchased online doesn’t have a barcode, you’ll need to pick up a real ticket. This is most often done at the ferry port about an hour before departure. Don’t worry about pick up – it’s easy and effortless and usually very close to your actual ferry.
  • Ferries will leave on-time from their first departure port in the morning (usually large ports like Piraeus, Heraklio, and Rhodes) but will be late arriving and departing from all onward ports (e.g. Naxos). Usually getting later as the day progresses.

Naxos to Santorini Ferry Schedule

Naxos and Santorini are two of the most visited islands of the Cyclades group in Greece, and there are frequent daily ferries between the two in the busy summer months. There are more frequent ferries in July and August than in May, June, September, and October. Ferries depart Naxos port from mid-morning until evening hours, as late as 11pm in the height of August. The length of the ride is about an hour and a half but varies depending on what boat you choose. Blue Star ferries are larger, more stable, and generally slower, usually taking about 2 hours for the journey. Smaller high-speed catamarans can sometimes make the journey in half that time. Ticket prices range from about €30 to €80.
